About the Foundation

Mission Statement

The Telluride Animal Foundation’s mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets.  TAF focuses on supporting existing shelters and sanctuaries through targeted funding, sponsoring spay/neuter initiatives to fight euthanasia, providing food for struggling owners to keep their animals in their care, and networking rescue animals to increase awareness and adoption rates.

We will strive to create better lives for animals by:

1. Limiting the number of unwanted animals through education about adopting shelter and rescue dogs and increasing the number of spay and neuter clinics available to the public.

2. Enhancing the quality of existing shelters and sanctuaries.

3. Connecting volunteers with local organizations.

4. Creating a network amongst current shelters and sanctuaries to provide better adoption rates in the extended area.

We are a licensed federal non-profit organization, tax exempt under the 501 (c) (3) Internal Revenue Code. Our federal tax id number is 45-0839793.
